Great BnB right next to the Hilton and a short walk from the hustle and bustle of town. Our room was excellent and spotlessly clean with a comfy bed 😊. The couple running it were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast was to die for! Would defiantly stay again and recommend. Had a great... More

Stayed at the Benson last night with my cousin. We could not fault anything! It's in a great location, away from on the hussle and bussle, which is only a short walk away. The man who greeted us was lovely (unfortunately I didn't catch his name). Nothing seemed to much hassle. We stayed in the family room which was cosy.... More

Just stayed one night was very well looked after. Spotless, great breakfast, located in quieter part of Blackpool that suited us. We rang prior about wheelchair hire and was given number of a local shop. As steps up to front door. Owners let us store hire chair in their garage.

This hotel is at the quieter end of Blackpool promenade although you are less than 50 yards from the nearest tram stop into the busier parts. From what I understand the business has recently changed ownership and the new owners are doing a good job in my opinion. Service was excellent, we were made to feel really welcome. Breakfast was...

We stayed here for the November meeting of the George Formby Society which is held at the Imperial Hotel, just round the corner. Free on-street parking outside the hotel, or in the Hilton car park opposite for £5 a night. The new owners are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The bedroom was clean and comfortable, with a... More

We visited for a weekend with our 3 boys. Had a great time. Paul/Steve were so helpful, nothing was a bother to them. Breakfast was lovely. .just what you need to start your day. Room was spotless. Would definitely recommend to others and will be staying there again if we visit Blackpool again. Keep up the great work guys. :-)
